It's not all that good anyway, a lot of it sounds like complete repetition

Maybe its not improv? Maybe its just a string of licks amalgamated together? Now that I think about it, it sounds like that.

I didnt enjoy it. Great technique, but I didnt like his phrasing.


I sort of agree.

Quote by one vision
Good for his age. Imo he's still at that stage where he feels the need to keep his fingers moving at all times during improvisation. Not enough feeling.
Most guitarists and pianists are like that. We arent forced to phrase like singers, like woodwind and brass players are. So our phrasing usually sucks. Its the odd gem that does have good phrasing.

very basic!

i was doing that after a year, i think earlier!

if he was sweeping and varying techniques more id be impressed

He was good, very good actually, but he was way too tense and he rushed the music. Won't be surpised if he has back problems or wrist problems soon if he stays that tense...

Why does everyone always bitch when they see a good guitarist? I admit that it does get repetitive at times but for gods sake he's 13!

I wonder if he worked his butt off all summer to get that guitar...

Also, he's good for his age (if this is current then he's only a bit younger than me haha) but it doesn't look like improv to me. I give it a 6.

For a blues-rock style song, his phrasing is pretty good. It fits. I liked some of the licks he used, but he rarely goes anywhere in the freboard except that 12th fret region. Very solid blues-rock playing. And whoever said that he could play this within a year, no one is fooled by you. good sir.

I'm pretty damn impressed... I thought his phrasing was pretty good. Now the only thing he's gotta learn is when he can slow down and still have it sound good.

it gets repetitive i agree, but for 13 you can't really knock him, like if you saw a 13 year old doing kick ups.

Definitely impressive but he seems to use the same licks a few times over and over and it's really obvious.

Basic, yes. But I call on BS on your claim.

All of you guys saying it's repetitive, crap, not good are simply jealous.
Yes, it's not THAT good. No, he isn't bad. He's very good. And it was a good improvisation.

I agree completely. I hate the jealousy that a lot of people show. Oftentimes, I feel like people pounce on a video on Youtube simply because it isn't an established guitarist playing, but if someone like Vai or Satch were to play the same thing, everyone would be singing his praises.

No, this isn't Satch or Vai quality guitarwork, but he's a good guitarist. Give him some credit.

He looks so bored, like its a chore for him. His tone is tolerable, not great, and his phrasing is passable but not great, even for improve.

Edit: On saying this, he still plays better then me. I'd like to hear some honest songwriting from him though.

You know what I find absolutely PATHETIC?

The need to compare stuff completely unrelated to context.

I hate this. Can't people just enjoy a song, say.. a Van Halen song, rather than going.. "lololololo so and so cud have dun it better!!11"

Just no. People like this have OH SO MUCH to learn about music, instruments and playing them.

I don't care if this is a full on rant it has to be said to the majority of feckers out there.
#34
terrible just because he is using that rip off song instead of infinite dreams
yeah.

I hate when people say "he's good for a 13 year old". AGE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOOD OR BAD YOU ARE AT SOMETHING! It's about practice!

i didn't really like it, mainly because it wasn't really a true improvisation(or at least didn't sound like it). it seemed like he took another song and put it into this one. but he is quite talented, but he isn't exceptionally good
#37
That sounded sweet, but for some reason I doubt he came up with it on the spot. Sounded a bit familiar.

If he did, bravo. Amazing improv, much better than I can do.
#38
im impressed. for his age at least. if it was someone 16+ i wouldnt be impressed.

the tone isnt aggresive enough for that style though.

and it just sounds like he wanted to show off his soloing, the phrases didn't fit what he was playing. and he got off beat a few times.
